Wow, what a concept for this show - All beverages, all the time. Quite a diverse set of songs from the Boogiemonster's dungeon this time around - from JUICE Newton to "GIN AND JUICE." From "No MILK Today" to "MILK and ALCOHOL." While the fine line of including beverages in the title or the artist name (The O'Jays = Orange Juice?) is walked skillfully, I'm not exactly sure the link goes past that - - which it certainly doesn't need to, when you have Mr. Gerber behind the mic linking things up for you - even sometimes admitting it's a sort of dumb idea for a show.
What could be the standout for me personally is the inclusion of "DISCOMANIA" by Cafe Creme from 1978 - it's one of the most ridiculous "God-Awful Medleys" I've heard featured on the show yet - ten minutes of pure... crap. A few years before Stars on 45 cashed in on the medley craze, these guys were doing something almost as atrocious, if not even more tongue-in-cheek.
Good "theme" show - worth the listen!
